Turkish Cypriot Red Crescent, in cooperation with Bayrak Radio & Television (BRT), launched an aid campaign for Somalia which has been suffering from severe hunger and drought.
People, who want to support the campaign, will be able to donate 5 Turkish lira (TL) by sending an SMS to the number 4858 in two GSM operators in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC).
The assistance, which is collected from people in TRNC, will be transferred to Turkish Red Crescent to buy humanitarian aid, and sent to Somalia.
Tens of thousands of people are suffering from drought and famine in Somalia and head for refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia in search of food and water. Turkey, on Wednesday, hosted an extraordinary meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul to discuss the recent situation in Somalia, the reasons of hunger crisis and what can be done for Somali people.
